Re: Australia vs Switzerland


As another Aussie living in Switzerland for some time now, I can say both countries have their positive and negative points.
I have to say reading your comments, alot of what you say is vey sterotypical. Not all Australians are drunks, or into sport. Many are also intelligent and into other things. Its all about who you choose to associate with or make friends with - you will get that anywhere, and not just in Australia.
It seems to me you have already made up your mind. Why dont you just stop talking about it, stop being critical of a country that has given you a lot to offer. No one is keeping you there. Just move.
It seems to me though you are unhappy in general and that moving wont be the quick fix you are hoping it to be. I hope it is, but dont be surprised if you also find issues whereever you go. IT cant hurt to try though!

Re: Australia vs Switzerland

Best way would be for him (and you ) to go on an extended visit if he can. It is so far away that he might be a little lost of the idea of going there. If you both want to make this work then let's do it. Good luck.
